Notice: Free Republic has been in full rebellion mode since 2008 and will remain in full rebellion mode for the duration!
No more Doles!! No more McCains!! No more RINOS!!
Those who cannot stomach rebellion might as well start looking for a new home on the net!!
Those who have ignored my hundreds of posts on this crucial issue or who have doubted me these last three or four years might as well get used to it. FR will never support the abortionist, homosexualist, socialist, mandate loving, constitution trampling liar Mitt Romney.
In case you haven't noticed, a TEA Party rebellion is on and Free Republic signed on years ago. There is no turning back. No more crap from the GOP-e!! They've screwed us for the last time!! Karl Rove and Mitt Romney, et al, loathe conservatism and loathe the tea party and took it upon themselves to use their money and connections to destroy nearly every one of our conservative tea party candidates while pushing their big government RINOS. That makes them the enemy. I will not reward that betrayal by giving them my support or my vote.
FR is and will remain a pro-life, pro-limited government conservative site!!
We are beholden to NO ONE!! We bow to no kings!! We bow to NO RINOS!!
I'd rather fight and die like a man than bend over and be screwed by a RINO!! I refuse to kiss Karl Rove or Mitt Romney's rings!! They can kiss my rosy red ass instead!!
Long live the rebellion!!
Hope my message is clear.
You have done nothing but answer a question no one asked. Certainly not the one I did.
So I understand that you cannot and such, babble on to a different topic. So be it. Your non-answer is instructive as to what you believe.
PS, Like it? Hell! I am proud of the fact that Romney voters oppose my words/tactics. Flack/target and all that.
Bedtime for Bonzo. I’ll sleep well knowing my sense of decency/morality is Romney-free and thus, intact. For you I recommend Ambien and a talk with whatever higher power you believe in.
Right?! Some people are acting like spoiled babies! They didn’t get the candidate they wanted, so they’re going to take their toys and go home rather than fight for the candidate that still stands and hold his feet to the fire if he’s elected!
This is Obama folks! No time to act like children at this point!
“And there is not a dime’s difference between the two and you can’t show otherwise...which is what the rest of us know.”
Whatever Romney is, he isn’t a Marxist and he most certainly does NOT hate the country! Sorry, but that notion is completely unhinged. Romey’s a RINO, but he is not a Marxist.
Can I point out that Newt indicating he could be open to being Mitt’s VP says something about Newt himself? Not necessarily a good thing about him? Would any of us self described/avowed conservatives be open to being Mitt’s VP?
“I worked as Florida consultant with the Gingrich campaign. Im going to vote for Romney assuming hes the candidate and Ill press people to support him instead of helping Obama get elected to a second term.
If Im zotted for that, so be it. It would be a bigger loss to FR to not have my 21 years of PROFESSIONAL political insight than it would for me not to have a place where Im afraid to post my point of view.”
“PROFESSIONAL political insight” al a Rove, Perino, Krauthammer? Some of us are actually educated and can think for ourselves. We don’t have to have our point of view spoon fed to us. We’ve studied history and politics. Sorry, I’m not deferring to some “benevolent” political advisor to tell me who to vote for.
Nice try Norm. I guess you don’t like it when people use your own lame tactics on you.
I’ll get you a hanky.
I don't think this is logical. A vote can, and often does, simply say: I would rather have X in this position than his opponent. In today's process, this is fairly well know: how much support X has for his policies versus how much his election is due to the weaknesses of his opponent.
Further, electing a slew of candidates that oppose X on many issues would say: I'd rather have X, but I don't support him on these issues and I'm supporting those who will oppose him on them at every turn.
Also, each vote is not the final vote. A president can face a hostile party, in the House and Senate, after his first mid-term (if not sooner.)
As another point, your question could also be reversed to: To allow Obama to be re-elected you have to accept his positions. I don't think this is true either.
Thanks for your courteous reply.
phil, you’re trying much too hard tonight. ;-)
It takes a lot of hope to maybe think Obama won't do much, much worse, and that America can recover from the damage.
At what point do we decide that being realistic and voting for a fake conservative is just another step down the path to serfdom?
If the choice is between one small step and one giant leap, I'll take the small step. And yes, I will take being realistic over being unrealistic.
“Oh, PLEASE!! The Romney supporters have been flinging insults such as stupid, naive, purist, and traitor.”
OMG!!! Wash their mouths out with soap - those are just AWFUL vile epithets!
Tell me... did they call anyone a whore?
What try? YOU couldn’t answer the question, everyone here can read that for themselves.
Wanna try again? I wouldn’t recommend it. You cannot win. It is impossible for a conservative to vote for a flaming lib like Romney and remain a conservative. But you just go right on believing that voting for abortion, gays and global warming, and the man who embodies/promotes them through cash, rhetoric and LAW while a Gov, is a conservative value.
You look damn foolish.
Jim, I worked my ass off! Lots of us did! We even pushed to get Gingrich supporters as delegates just in case Romney didn’t get the 1144 before the convention so we can attempt to get a Gingrich vote on the third delegate poll in August...assuming we get the chance. I’m still pulling for a miracle, but if that doesn’t happen, delegates are going to be forced to vote Romney. Are those people less c
onservative that have to vote Romney in delegate polling? If they consciously can’t, they’ll be replaced with people who will.
At what point are we forgiven for being forced to do something we wouldn’t otherwise do?
...he most certainly does NOT hate the country!
He doesn't have to "hate" the nation, he only has to be indifferent to it...which he is.
Pretty Woman- “We say who, we say when, we say how much.”
You say “who,” “when,” and “how much.” I, and others, won’t.
Here’s a wild ass thought. Don’t do it and you won’t have to be ‘forgiven’ in the first place.
Being ‘forgiven’ means that you did something WRONG that you need to be forgiven FOR.
You did the right thing, sir.
I’m focused on the Congressional and local races. I do think we can survive four years Zero if we can increase the number of conservatives on the state and local levels. THAT is how we win the country back. Not by electing Mitt Romney president.
If Romney wins as a by-product of our efforts to elect conservatives (rides OUR coat-tails), so be it. However, a Romney presidency would present its own problems.
The White House is important, but it’s not the only game in town. We’ll just have to make sure that the four conservatives on SCOTUS remain in good health until 2016.
“At what point are we forgiven for being forced to do something we wouldnt otherwise do?”
Good question for the Germans circa WWII.
Excuse you! In fact, I resigned after Florida because I had felt I let my candidate down and wasn’t up to the challenge. If there were others who could do the job better, maybe Newt wouldn’t be sitting at 138!
I’m sorry, I’m not sure I understand your post to me. Could you expand a bit? Particularly who “we” in the first sentence and “you” in the second sentence refer to.
Be careful... he’ll hit you with his ultimate rhetoric and call you a brown-noser. Lot of thought in that...
Funny. I didn’t see you out there while we were campaigning. What was your excuse for not getting a better candidate elected in the primary?
Lots of finger pointing going around. I suppose it’s natural when one is depressed.
If you don’t understand the reference, I’m not going to explain it. I’m sure plenty of others will get it. I don’t do remedial with strangers.
Don't fall for that PSYOP BS, pops88!
“Funny. I didnt see you out there while we were campaigning.”
Excuse me?! You have no idea my involvement in the current election. Just because I wasn’t on your street corner doesn’t mean I haven’t been involved. Also, just because I don’t post furiously on FR doesn’t mean I haven’t been involved.
I also pointed out that your actions (or in-actions) in deciding not to vote would effectively aid the Marxist in his destruction of the country; calling into question your conservative values.
You can keep playing this diversion game where you pretend that i didn't answer the question, but it really is getting old.
That’s the way it works. In Florida, two delegates are selected per voting.unit along with two alternates. The delegates are committed to the state primary winner unless the overall winner is decided before the convention. I along with others fought to get Gingrich delegates slated. The alternates are determined by the winning candidate. If the people we sat who favor Gingrich aren’t in good conscious able to pull the lever for Romney, someone will.
So who do you blame at that point? The GOP-E? I agree to a point, but sooner or later you’ll run out of alternates!
“Be careful... hell hit you with his ultimate rhetoric and call you a brown-noser. Lot of thought in that...”
Spoiled babies because we’re Conservatives first and foremost and our principles dictate that we refuse to support Obama’s chosen opponent?
We’re not spoiled babies, we’re battered wives that have decided to leave the Ruling Class husbands who use us to keep themselves in power, then betray us, beat us, vilify us and otherwise sleep with the enemy and demand we still honor them as our legitimate party spouse, no matter the whore they bring into the house for us to support.
We’re done with that, we went through this same EXACT thing in 2008, and heard the same exact rantings that if we did not vote for McCain, then Obama wins. We DID vote for McCain despite knowing he despised us and BAM! O - was elected anyway. This time will be no different except Obama wins again by a larger margin.
I refuse to vote for a hand-picked opponent by the Ruling Class that WANTS what Obama is doing to the country as long as they get to ride on his coattails of power and have a say in where the money goes.
I refuse to vote for a Liberal-Fascist who might have a passing care for country in order to placate a fantasy that he will stop a Marxist -Fascist who hates the country. The Liberal Fascist will DO NOTHING to stop what Obama has already done, and only build upon it for his own power and legacy.
When to Leftists run for the same office, the greater Leftist is going to win hands down.
The bettered wives of the dead GOP who have had enough with being raped for votes and then beaten by those they reluctantly supported.
No more. The same bunch that gave us McCain, are now shoving Romney up our arses - and Romnney is the guy Obama WANTS to run against.
American have no clue what time it really is. But I refuse to keep the illusion that we have a voice or choice going with the Ruling Class Fascists now running everything and consolidating their power over us.
I just don’t want to reply in a discussion where I’m not clear about what it is I’m responding to. I can guess, but I’d rather communicate more efficiently.
If you don’t wish to clarify sufficiently in order to discuss, of course that’s your prerogative.
thanks for your reply.
You did no such thing. But then anyone willing to vote for Romney cannot be expected to tell the truth.
“Im focused on the Congressional and local races. I do think we can survive four years Zero if we can increase the number of conservatives on the state and local levels. THAT is how we win the country back. Not by electing Mitt Romney president.”
You’re more than welcome to try to do a better job son. If your posts are of any indication- if YOU had anything to do with a professional campaign- Gingrich would have dropped out when Perry did!
Strictly rhetorical so don't bother answering.
Wow. Well said.
“not have my 21 years of PROFESSIONAL political insight”
Say what? It seems to me its ass wipes like you who have been screwing conservatives all those years and pulling the GOP further and further left..
When you said Psyops, you weren’t kidding. I’ve studied propaganda techniques since the late 90s and these posters are bringing out some good ones.
Yes, the winner of the majority of Florida votes gets to choose who he wants as delegates. That’s pretty consistent throughout America. It’s purely symbolic, but we managed to get some Gingrich supporters slated as delegates thanks to a loophole. Mind you, if it ever went to court, Romney could argue that he should be able to slate his own delegates since he got majority vote.
Go watch “Pretty Woman,” a movie, which was released in 1990 and has been torturing people with tv reruns practically weekly for a decade and get back to me. Here’s a hint- the main character is a prostitute.
I will by no means mark my ballot for Obama and you can bet I'll show up to vote for my congressman, senator governor, etc.
Thanks. I am familiar with “Pretty Woman” the movie.
What I’m not clear about is whom you are comparing to the prostitute - the “you” in the second sentence.
Jim, what about no more Obamas? Is that no longer important?
